PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Max Lagace recorded his AHL-leading fourth shutout of the year and Brendan Gaunce collected three points as the Providence Bruins defeated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 5-0, on Friday night. Jack Studnicka scored a goal for the third consecutive game and Alex Petrovic recorded his team-leading 15th point in the victory.

JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“It was our best start of the year for sure. Our first period was terrific. We carried things on into the second and were able to roll all four lines. Our goalie helped us out in the third and overall it was a good two points.

“I think our play has been more consistent, which is encouraging. We’ve had some good, hard practices and I hope we continue to build and play like we have over these last few games. ”

BRENDAN GAUNCE - TWO GOALS, ONE ASSIST

“I think we played well as a team. We need to improve on playing a full 60, but this was the first time this season we’ve been up 5-0, so it was a unique situation.

“I think overall it was really good. Anytime you win there’s confidence in the room. I think we’ve been playing well and we just want the hard work to continue dictating the results and things will take care of themselves.”
